Labour’s “premature capitulation” weakens opposition, Lucas warns

Green Party leader Caroline Lucas: “Labour’s premature capitulation on Article 50 leaves those of us who oppose a hard brexit in a weaker position. We now have less power to persuade the Government to give us proper details on their plans ahead of a vote.”

“A small majority of people voted to leave the EU, but without any clear plan of what such a vote would mean.

“I’d urge Labour to rethink their stance on this. The Government should not be able to ride roughshod over Parliament – and MPs should be demanding more details from Ministers before standing aside and letting them pursue brexit entirely on Tory terms.”
